Who’s using what and why?

This post by Alan Cann really resonated with some of my own thoughts about current trends of use and uptake of technologies. I think the general consensus is that most people have moved beyond the simple notion of ‘the younger they are the more technology literate they are’ to an understanding that use and uptake depends on a range of complex and inter-connected factors. BUT unpacking and understanding them is the challenge!! ;-)

    In most of the projects I have run over the pastr few years, I have anyalyzed any gender differences (in responses, outcomes, etc), but never found any. However, while this seems to be acceptable, looking at social status and ethnicity is a far trickier problem in most institutions - it’s the elephant in the room.
